3. Is the home run back? The numbers say it is. There have been 1.05 HR/G this season. To put that number into perspective, there were 0.86 HR/G in 2014 and 1.04 HR/G in 1998. It would be the 9th highest HR/G in a season in baseball history if the season ended today. Chicks dig the long ball and the players are getting the message.
